Abstract

Recently, molecular electronics has attracted much attention as a 'post-silicon technology' for future nanoscale electronic devices. One of the most important elements in molecular electronic devices is the realization of a unimolecular rectifier. In the present study, the geometric and electronic structure of the TTF-derivative (donor)-sigma-bond-TCNQ-derivative (acceptor), a leading candidate for a molecular rectifying device has been investigated theoretically using ab initio quantum mechanical calculations.
